Making Bagels for Breakfast and Lunch, then Wearing the Morning Like a Shroud

when
the breath
escapes
the lungs
through
the nose
the body
settles
softly
softly
softly
into
the
corner of
the couch
while
the heater
blows air
too, and
the refrigerator
hums along
then the
heat
turns off
making room
for silence
as the
humming &
the breathing
& the sitting
softly
settling
continues.
the hand
adjusts
the glasses
and
the nose
sniffs.
it’s 4:30 AM
exactly.
